Description du produit
Revue de presse
"Sets out with enviable (and alarming) lucidity the massive challenges now facing our species as genetic technologies, AI and robotics alter forever our relationships with one another and with other species. It’s even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens." (Kazuo Ishiguro Guardian Books of the Year)
"I think the mark of a great book is that it not only alters the way you see the world after you've read it, it also casts the past in a different light. In Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted & accessible manner. I don't normally ask for autographs but I got a bit starstruck & asked him to sign my copy of his book after we'd had a conversation for my show on BBC 6Music. His inscription reads: 'The future is in your hands' - a good thing to remember when such great changes are afoot." (Jarvis Cocker Mail on Sunday)
"Spellbinding… This is a very intelligent book, full of sharp insights and mordant wit... It is a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart... It is hard to imagine anyone could read this book without getting an occasional, vertiginous thrill." (David Runciman Guardian)
"Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before." (Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow)

‘Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before.’ Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow
Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. In Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between.
Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century – from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.

"Science sans conscience n'est que ruine de l'âme"
Ce livre en est l'expression actualisée!
Pascal était l'inventeur de la machine à calculer!
Blaise Pascal, great scientist and philosopher, was saying centuries ago:
"Science without concience is the destruction of the soul..."
He was the inventor of the first calculator...
Here we find some application about that now ....
An example of such assumptions: The book claims a soul cannot exist because it cannot evolve through evolution like our bodies but states later that "The basic abilities of individual humans have not changed much since the Stone Age." It claims believers say animals have no soul and blames the bible for mistreatment of animals. A very basic level of critical questioning of these statement would show that monotheists believe animals and indeed the whole creation has a role in eternity of which life in earth is but a short passage ( Mark 16:15: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."). Another claim is that feelings are more important than values with little consideration for responsibilities and moral consequences. One of the books wildest claims is that the probability of us being only a virtual simulation is far higher than us really existing because there is only 1 reality but an infinite possibility of virtual simulations... One only has to look at the huge diversity of nature to realise that there are in fact an infinity of realities.. Finally the author goes to great pains to try to prove that "God is dead" and that almost everything is explained by science when in fact many scientists will admit that is requires a much greater leap of faith to believe our very exceptional existence is due to chance rather than to design. For example how can one explain the extremely exceptional odds of us existing, that apart form Earth the universe appears terribly sterile in spite of years of high tech listening to detect life elsewhere in the universe, that a sub quark particle cannot be observed, that the human being always had and always will have a unquenchable thirst for spirituality which no trendy modern dogmatic thought process will ever be able to fill.
